    One of the busiest stretches in Hyderabad, the Mehdipatnam-Tolichowki-Shaikpet road, is facing traffic snarls, especially during peak hours. The 5 km long road is plagued with slow civic works, dug-up roads, potholes, and dust. Commuters in Mehdipatnam, Tolichowki, and Shaikpet areas are finding it difficult to travel due to ongoing civic work in every other lane.

    Traffic jams are a daily occurrence on this stretch, with 80,000 to 1 lakh vehicles passing through it. The road connects to the IT corridor, adding to the bumper-to-bumper traffic and gridlock. Both sides of the road are congested with vehicles, causing chaos and making it hard for commuters to travel.

    Residents like Shaik Rabbani are frustrated with the delays caused by ongoing works. Projects like the Strategic Nala Development Programme and laying of sewerage pipelines are causing traffic disruptions for months in areas like Hakeempet and Seven Tombs Road. Business owners like Shaik Nizam are dealing with daily traffic jams, dust, and potholes due to the construction work.

    Haphazard parking outside hotels and restaurants worsens the traffic situation. Even with two flyovers in Tolichowki and Shaikpet, traffic jams persist. Commuters, like student Divya, face challenges like buses stopping abruptly and auto drivers causing congestion. Despite public difficulties, proposed road development projects in the master plan 2021 are still pending approval by civic authorities.
